Non-regular readers, supporters of IIPM, horny twits searching for Silk Smitha, pervs looking for pictures of drunk women in hotel, you will have one less blog to search for. Thank you for making my life here interesting. Or not.
So, shoo! Off with you, and scat.
Have they gone? You sure? Check under the table? Really, really gone?
Good! You can’t be careful enough these days, damn passersby looking on like this is a damn freakshow, or even a nudist beach.
Have they really gone? Sure? Good. Now what was I talking about? Oh yeah! Chandrachoodan pulls the plug on Selective Amnesia.
The Selective Amnesia you and I know will die its deserved death.
2001, the year I first started out as a wet behind the ears copywriter, I put up a page on tripod with pieces of my writings, some essays that have won me prizes in school, hoping to impress Creative Directors enough to give me an internship. That obsession with tripod continued well into 2003, writing a new story every second day, with a little e-mail script for feedback from random strangers.
Little did I know in 2001 that the very thing was soon to be called Blogging and give me my first shot at celebrity hood. Stupid me. I should have left well alone.
2003, August 28. Selective Amnesia was born, after three months of commenting on various “mainstream” blogs. SelAm was an obsession. It still is. Unfortunately for me.
2004, June 7. I moved from Blog City to this very domain, with a load of help, initially from Kingsley and then from Madman. Damn you guys. You should have refused to help me, saving me from this obsession.
Anyway, as I was saying, 2003 was the year I was cursed.
I, who hated habits, chose to form a lasting one.
I, who wasn’t addicted to anything, allowed myself one vice.
I, not bound by anything, willingly tied myself down to a page on the web.
Time’s come to cut the bonds that tie me. I’ve grown, learnt that I am more than just my words. I am more than my childish attempt to be popular.
I am Chandrachoodan. This is just a website. it will be no more what it is. I will be.
